The Case for Preventing Malnutrition Through Improved Infant Feeding and Management of Childhood Illness

Summary: This poster, presented by the IYCN Project at the 10th Commonwealth Association of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition Congress on Diarrhoea & Malnutrition in August 2009, makes a case for investing in prevention of severe acute malnutrition (SAM) rather than in the universal introduction of SAM treatment. The handout is based on the poster.
